Using Mobile Technology to Reduce Stereotypy

Nearly all children with autism spectrum disorders engage in non-functional repetitive vocal and motor behaviours commonly referred to as stereotypy. These repetitive behaviours may considerably interfere with the child's daily functioning, learning, and social inclusion. As such, stereotypy generally has a negative impact on the child and family's health and ...

Comparing Behavioral Assessments Using Telehealth for Children With Autism

Managing challenging behavior in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can profoundly improve quality of life for children and families. However, many families lack access to research-based treatment, such as applied behavior analysis (ABA). This study is a randomized trial comparing outcomes of treatment for ASD using either a standard Functional Analysis ...

Training Attention and Eye Movement in ASD

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a lifelong disorder that severely affects the ability to learn and function in a social environment. In typical function, higher level social, language and communication skills develop over the first few years of life and depend upon the critical building blocks of sensory-motor and attention ...

Treatment of Disruptive Behaviors in Fragile X Syndrome

Disruptive behaviors such as self-injury, aggression, and property destruction pose significant health-related issues to children diagnosed with fragile X syndrome (FXS), impacting the child's quality of life and causing significant distress to families. Access to appropriate treatment for families is severely limited by factors such as cost of care, shortages ...

Pilot Study to Improve Access to Early Intervention for Autism in Africa

In this proposal, the investigator's aim is to adapt the caregiver coaching version of the Early Start Denver Model (P-ESDM) and conduct a pilot study to explore the impact of this adapted intervention on child and caregiver outcomes in an African setting as well as understand key facilitators and barriers ...

Group Social ABCs: Early Intervention for Toddlers With Suspected ASD

The Social ABCs intervention was developed to meet the need for evidence-based, feasible, and sustainable interventions for toddlers with emerging ASD. Unlike other more comprehensive programs, the Social ABCs selectively targets only two key developmental areas (i.e., functional spoken language and positive affect). These domains were selected in order to ...

The Effect of Aroma on Anxiety Among Children With Autism.

Essential oils have been found in studies to reduce both stress and anxiety as measured by an anxiety inventory, but studies have not tested these effects among children who have an autism spectrum disorder. The essential oils used in this study are administered each morning for a total period of ...

Phase N/A

tDCS on Working Memory (WM) in Adults With ASD

Many studies have examined working memory in people with autism spectrum disorder as working memory deficits in individuals with autism spectrum disorder leads to multiple difficulties associated with behaviour regulation, cognitive flexibility, abstract thinking, and focusing and sustaining attention. Evidence suggests that transcranial Direct Current Stimulation on the left dorsolateral ...

Aquatic Therapy and Autism Spectrum Disorders

To compare the efficacy of one-on-one versus group-based aquatic therapy on the social interactions, behaviors and physical activities of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).

a2 Milk for Autism and Attention-deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Previous preliminary research studies have suggested that a diet devoid of milk and dairy products might be useful for some people on the autism spectrum in reducing certain types of behaviours or other symptoms that can affect quality of life. Aggravation of some of the symptoms of autism has been ...
